Robin Gnagne of Hearts of Oak wants to play for Ghana

Hearts of Oak’s Ivorian defender Robin Gnagne is considering switching allegiance to play for Ghana.

Gnagne claims the attractiveness of the Black Stars than the star-studded Ivory Coast national team has convinced him to change his nationality.

The stalwart centre-back has received rave reviews for his performances in the Ghana Premier Legaue since signing for Hearts this season.

The former Red Bull Academy trainee believes he has what it takes to play for the four-time African champions.

“I’m still thinking about it because I love the way the Black Stars play and I believe I can play better than most of the central defenders,” a jovial Gnagne told his teammates.

“I love Ghana. The people are friendly and they make me feel at home.

“The love and affection I have been receiving from the Hearts fans since I signed has been incredible and I want that to be a permanent feature in my career.”

He added that: “Maybe in future I would have a change of heart but for now I am considering playing for Ghana permanently.”

It will be recalled that, former Kotoko Ivorian striker Ahmed Toure was unsuccessful in his attempt to play for Ghana.
